Principal

Johnson Bio Pic 2015 (3)

My name is Dan “DJ” Johnson and I am the principal at Dubuque Senior High School. When asked what am I most proud of about our school I always reply “Our Ram Family!” Dubuque Senior High School is a special place comprised of dedicated students and staff that work together to create a school climate and culture built on our Ram Fam Core Values of Respect, Engagement and Integrity. I am proud of a culture that is inclusive and demonstrates the best of what our community has to offer and can accomplish when working together. We don’t claim to be perfect…but we are always trying to get better.

As we embark on our upcoming Renovation project that will improve the physical building, Our Rams will continue to build upon Dubuque Senior’s legacy of hard work and dedication to positively impacting the lives of our community members.
